Matchbox 14th Street Restaurant Review: Another member of the matchbox family, this large outpost right in the heart of the U Street Corridor offers casual eats at affordable prices, much like its siblings in the metro area. Described as a vintage pizza bistro, matchbox has all the earmarks of an American restaurant with a wood-fired masonry oven that burns with an intense heat. But no matter how strong your pizza craving --- and these are first-rate --- don’t skip past the bistro menu, full of salads, soups (such as the cream of crab), sandwiches and a burger accented with melted Gorgonzola. For dessert, you’ll enjoy the chocolate chip bread pudding with a rum-infused caramel sauce.
